iheartscotch: Do people not have 4 wheel drive? I've never been in a situation that 4 lo and a wench couldn't get me out of.


When you've got snow up to your bumper with a sheet of ice underneath it, it doesn't matter how many wheels you're spinning; you're not going anywhere.

If you've never gotten stuck with 4 wheel drive, I think you've never tried driving/plowing in deep snow. It gets packed underneath regardless of your ground clearance, and when the weight is off the tires, you go nowhere.

zimbomba63: Just here a plane go over the house, probably on its way to Midway.  First one today.


When it's really cold, the airliners sound like they're 100 feet high. My guess is that cold air is dense and carries sound better.

Just got a call from a friend visiting relatives in MI letting me know his flight was cancelled. His can't get out and come up to Fairbanks, where it is warm, for another 5 days.

This is the Midwest! If you don't have 4 wheel drive and a winch; you're going to get stuck somewhere. It's in the brochure.

Lived in the midwest for 30 years and never had, or needed, 4WD much less a winch.

Your nose hairs freeze when you inhale. You know it is cold when that happens

REALLY cold is when the water in your eyes starts freezing. Your eye will tear to prevent it. Because of course what you really need is tears running down your face in super cold weather.

SearchN: jaytkay: I am f'ing psyched for Monday. I don't think I've ever experienced 10F below zero.

/ Chicagoan
// Got a good parking spot yesterday, probly not gonna move the car this week

Its cold. Starts to tingle a bit as well when you breath.


And then you get that feeling like your eyeballs are frozen in the sockets.

Then you go indoors and it's like whatever is inside your nose thaws and your nose starts running like a mofo and you don't even have a cold or anything.

/Moved to TX from IL and I don't miss the cold one bit
//Sure, as a citizen of the Republic of Texas, I have other problems

Yeah, I love having a wench so she can push me out of the snow banks.

Without knowing precisely what the danger is, would you say it's time for our viewers to crack each other's heads open and feast on the goo inside?
